The stories in this book are reprinted from Volumes IV and V of The Fornander Collection of Hawaiian Antiquities and Folk-lore, published by the Bernice P. Bishop Museum in 1917, 1918, and 1919. These two volumes include some of the best-loved Hawaiian stories, and the collection is probably the most important work on a traditional subject ever published in the Hawaiian language. The introduction is in English and the texts of the stories are in Hawaiian with English on facing pages.
